PARIS -- Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced that it has signed an agreement with Telenor, Norway's leading telecommunications service provider to supply Alcatel's next generation IP broadband services access platform, supporting Telenor's "All IP" network strategy. The Alcatel solution will enable Telenor to offer its customers high bandwidth triple play services such as IPTV, video on demand, and HDTV and cost-effectively meet their strategic objectives.

"With our commitment to an 'All IP' strategy, we are now ready to transform our broadband access network and offer differentiated, high bandwidth content services to our customers", said Berit Svendsen, Head of Telenor Nordic Fixed. "Alcatel is the recognized worldwide leader in deploying broadband access solutions, and their ability to support large-scale deployments and their local presence, provides Telenor with the confidence to transform our network smoothly."

Dirk Van den Berghen, President of Alcatel's access network activities commented, "Alcatel has been Telenor's key supplier of broadband access solutions since 2000 and we are committed to continuing this relationship and contributing to Telenor's future success. Telenor joins other major Nordic service providers who have selected Alcatel's ISAM solution as the cornerstone for their access network transformation."

The Alcatel solution is based on its market leading ISAM (Intelligent Services Access Manager) product family, including the Alcatel 7302 ISAM, the Alcatel 7330 ISAM FTTN, and the 7342 ISAM FTTU. The ISAM product family is the industry's first IP broadband services access platform, accommodating a wide range of access technologies and network topologies. The ISAM family is specifically designed to minimize the complexity and ensure profitability as service providers transform their broadband access networks to support full triple play service adoption.

Alcatel's ISAM family is a key strategic asset for service providers and has been chosen by more than 70 service providers worldwide. Alcatel is the world-leading provider of IP triple play services over broadband access solutions with over 80 million cumulative DSL lines shipped worldwide.
